... by a process of elimination you decide who stays and who goes. I now own two pairs of pants, a tee and some odd socks (don't even think one of them is mine). Deep inside I know it wasn't the clothes making my pack heavy, but the 2 Euro bottle of wine, a collection of impractically large rocks from the top of Etna and some cow shaped salt and pepper shakers I found deep in the Catanian flee markets. Secretly I know this, but its all about priorities. xx
Waking up around 7 am, I worked on my blog from the previous day, got ready, and went to the kitchen for breakfast. It was just me in there. I enjoyed an amazing donut type thing. There was so much food but the donut was all I could eat. The kitty came down and we played for a good 30 minutes until the children called him back up.
Out in the sunshine, I walked towards the fish market. It was another beautiful day. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bel Soggiorno Hotel Taormina
Fantastic Place to stay!
I had a great experience at this great hotel!
It is excellent value for money. The building is beautifully located in a lush garden with incredible views over the sea and Mount Etna.
The hotel is in a gorgeous palazzo with lots of character.
The rooms are fairly simple, but clean, well equipped and maintained!
Bathrooms are nice, and beds comfortable!
The breakfast on the terrace outside was just perfect to set us off for the day!
Would love to go back again!
A great stay at the Bel Soggiorno
I stayed in the Bel Soggiorno for four days. It is situated in a lovely, quiet position in Taormina with the most wonderful views. The staff are most helpful and welcoming, making for a relaxing and restful stay in Taormina. Do not expect plush luxury but the rooms have everything you need for a pleasant holiday. There is a wide and varied choice for breakfast that sets you up very nicely for the day. I look forward to returning in the near future.
Previous reviews have accurately captured the feel of Hotel Bel Soggiorno -- pleasant staff, knockout views of the Ionian Sea and Mt. Etna from the terraces, a delicious breakfast, good value for the price, free parking (the slope is daunting but manageable), and the bonus of an uphill stroll to town to stimulate the appetite for its many delicacies.
It's great to read these more recent reviews and to see that this hotel still gives so much pleasure.
Loved our stay!!
Have just got back from the most wonderful holiday in Sicily. We stayed at the Bel Soggiorno for 2 weeks and could not fault it. The views are breathtaking from all the terraces. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast plentiful (loved the bread and cakes!) The temperature reached 40 degrees during our stay so the A/C was most welcome. Take my advice and go B&B as there are dozens of restaurants in the town to choose from to suit all tastes and budgets. We shall definitely return!!
everyone looking, reading, guessing, hoping that the hotel they choose in taormina will be perfect. life is not perfect but choosing a hotel is not that hard.
Farrell Family: Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
As of Feb 2004... ... Hotel is simple yet adequate. Owner and staff friendly and give good service. Parking slightly interesting as there are limited spaces on a steep driveway. Room is fine although plumbing could do with modernisation. Room had tv (BBC World 24) and aircon which can heat or chill. Breakfast on terrace is great fun and the views are breathtaking: southern Italy to left, sea dead ahead and Mount Etna to right. Private garden sports juicy orange trees - unbelievable flavour! Short walk to town but does involve climbing a few steps. Simple yet quiet and pleasant. Visit www.*************************** for more info and pics.
Well I liked it!
I have got to say firstly that my husband hated this hotel with a passion. I like to think he mistook the faded grandeur with decrepitude and the signs of character as dirt! Ok, it didn't have the comforts of a modern hotel and we forsook a room with a decent bath for a room with a terrible bathroom but fantastic views! I think it was more than worth it. I have only stayed in one place with finer views and that was in Venice overlooking St Marks Basin and all its glory (again husband disagrees and plumps for Onda verde, Praiano for 2nd place) The rates were reasonable,the parking free (if a bit hazardous, and the breakfasts, terraces and garden - sublime. And as husband can't manage computer I have the final word on this one!
